The Story Behind

Gene NeralIn the introduction to my book, I had to admit that if I have an addiction, it is probably to westerns and movies about horses. I have been attracted to horses ever since I saw a black quarter horse in a rodeo when I was a young boy. For a long time, I really wished I could own one. At the age of seventy-three, I was still able to ride, as you can see in this picture, but because of medical issues, that is no longer an option.

You will also notice how my attraction to horses and movies with horses caused me to have an encounter with the Lord, which helped me to realize that God speaks to us, when, where and how He chooses. Therefore, we need to keep our eyes open to the events in our life through which He speaks and our ears tuned to listening for His voice.

In addition to listening and watching for His words and actions, it is most important that we recognize that God has a plan for each of us. He doesn't give us all the details and He doesn't tell us when we will reach our goal. He does give us one moment at a time to live to the best of our ability.

I have often said that if God told us at the beginning of each day what He had in store for us, many of us would either have a panic attack or just stay in bed. It's also said that God only gives us one moment at a time because He knows that's all we can handle.
This moment and every moment is a gift of God's merciful love and how we handle His gift, as He gives it to us, can change our lives.

An event in my life which I will explain in more detail in the first chapter of my book, brought me to the discovery of the phrase which you see as the title of this work. In this book I hope to explain the meaning of that phrase and why you have to learn to live it backwards, even though you read it forward.

I pray that each of you, who read this book, will learn to live each moment of your life with complete TRUST in GOD'S LOVE, and respond to the grace of each moment as you receive it.

The book is now available on KINDLE through Amazon, the NOOK through Barnes and Noble and the IPad through Apple books. It is also available in print through Amazon, Barnes & Noble and Xulon Press and a number of other Christian bookstore locations.
